Plans Underway for Homeless Shelter to Open

MAY 26, 2006 -- A Brunswick County homeless shelter, kept closed because of a lawsuit, may open its doors next month.

The Gerety Family Haven is on Midway Road in Bolivia. Residents of that neighborhood had filed a lawsuit against the county after the property was re-zoned to permit the shelter. The court ruled in favor of the county and now the opponents have until June 12 to appeal.

Officials with the shelter say it's needed to help families get back on their feet.
